Carmel Crevola (@carmelcrevola), Heather Jelley (@team_jellybean), and Angie Harrison (@techieang) have all showed me the value in using oral language in the classroom. This year especially, I am trying to give students more and more talking time, and I love hearing what they have to say. Below is a glog that I made today that features videos of students talking about math. Having discussions with them about their learning really shows me what they have learned and what they continue to need to learn.
I hope that you enjoy these video clips! I would love to hear about how you use oral language in the classroom for formative assessment. I think that we can learn a lot from each other!
